review 1: I mostly liked this book, and still quite like the author. However, I was uncomfortable with the focus on ethnic differences in this book. Some of the discussion was important to the story and probably realistic given the small, homogeneous town setting. But some of the comments, especially by Penny herself (who, as a Canadian should have more experience with people of different backgrounds) was a bit disconcerting and off putting, and made me wonder about the writer herself. I'll give her another chance, but I'm hoping she stays away from that subject matter in the future.
review 2: Continuing on the cozy mystery trip...Elizabeth Duncan returns to the North Wales town of Llanelen in this second book with manicurist/detective Penny Brannigan. This time, Pe
... morenny investigates a thirty-year-old cold case involving art fraud and a hit-and-run. I truly did enjoy these books more for reading them in order and think I may go back and reread the third book and see if I like it better now. Currently though, so many books, so little time! less

I love this series and how Penny is sort of the Cold Case queen of the village.
Not as good as The cold light of mourning, but still worth reading.
so very very very good. buying the next one tomorrow.
Makes me want to spend time in Wales.
